TicWatch 3 Pro Design And Key Features
The TicWatch Pro 3 is the world’s first all-smart watch running the Wear OS operating system and packed with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100 wearable device platform. Compared with the Snapdragon 3100 wearable device platform, the CPU performance and memory processing speed of the new product are increased by up to 85%. At the same time, the GPU performance is increased by 150%, and the power consumption is reduced by 25%. The built-in memory capacity is 1GB while the storage is 8GB.
This smartwatch uses a new generation of double-layer durable screen 2.0. The monochrome FSTN screen displays basic information, such as time and heart rate. After raising your hand, it naturally switches to a 1.39-inch Retina AMOLED retina-level screen, which has a 454×454 HD resolution.
The TicWatch Pro 3 implements two modes to meet battery life requirements. The smart mode lasts up to 72 hours, and the durable mode lasts up to 45 days.
In addition to the power-saving double-layer screen and the new Qualcomm low-power platform, the battery capacity has been expanded to 577mAh. This is nearly 40% higher than the previous generation battery capacity. Relying on the stacking of cloth plates, the thickness of the watch is reduced by 0.4mm, but it is lighter and thinner.
The TicWatch Pro 3 uses a 316L stainless steel body. It is combined with reinforced nylon and glass fiber and other materials.
Its body thickness is 12.2mm, which is 0.4mm thinner and lighter than the previous generation. More importantly, the overall weight of the TicWatch Pro 3 is about 29% lighter than the previous generation, with only 42.3 grams.
As for the strap, the TicWatch Pro3 uses soft, dry, sweat-wicking silicone and handmade saddle stitching. It is designed with a 22mm strap that is commonly used in the market. This smartwatch also supports IP68 swimming-level water resistance. It can freely switch between backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle, and butterfly strokes.
Connectivity And Functions
As a true flagship smartwatch, the TicWatch Pro 3 has independent communication across the entire network and supports eSIM. Thus, it doesn’t need a smartphone to allows you answer calls and send messages.
Due to the AI voice algorithm, the TicWatch Pro 3 can realize functions such as route query, find restaurants or hotels, calendar query, schedule setting, etc.
In fact, the TicWatch Pro 3 is not just a smartwatch, but also an AI recorder on the wrist. Users can quickly record anytime and anywhere without missing any important information. Later, users can easily play recorded files, and convert them into text with one click. By the way, the accuracy rate is up to 98%. It supports rapid text positioning, automatic extraction of keywords, and complete meeting minutes for one-click sharing.
In terms of health and sports functions, the TicWatch Pro 3 has added a blood oxygen saturation detection function. The latter allows users to detect blood oxygen levels anytime and anywhere, and master their own health changes. When you go out, use 12 LED lights to form HD PPG. They make the monitoring data more accurate and comparable to professional heart rate belts.
For high-intensity mental workers, elderly people, people who are hypoxic in mountain/altitude environments, and people who snore, the team has developed a new AI intelligent heart rate algorithm for high-precision monitoring in multiple scenarios. As a result, the watch supports heart rate warning and emotional stress monitoring, night heart rate non-disturbance monitoring, etc.
The TicWatch Pro 3 also applies the exclusive research and development TicMotion motion active recognition AI algorithm to actively identify the user’s current motion. At the same time, the barometer function is added to support various sports modes such as mountaineering, trail running, outdoor cycling, yoga, etc. The watch records the corresponding sports data (exercise time, calories, heart rate, etc.) and through the TicMotion instructor, it accurately monitors big data in the background.
The watch has further upgraded and iterated access control cards, transportation cards and payment functions. So now, it allows the watch to act as a wallet. You can complete the payment by lifting the wrist and scanning the code.
The TicWatch Pro 3 runs the new Wear OS by Google operating system. It can download up to 180+ apps, breaking through the application restrictions of smartwatches. Thus, it can realize the experience of using the watch to reply to WeChat (only supported by Android), check flights, listen to songs online, and browse videos.
